About the Church of Saint Leonard:

One of Poland’s beautiful wooden churches, this building dates from the 16th Century.  The main point of interest here is the Crucifix that has been reported as miraculous.

According to a tradition, in 1863 a Russian soldier led a handcuffed insurgent down a road. As they were passing by the little church here, the prisoner asked if he could pray there for a moment. Standing before the Crucifix, he suddenly felt that the handcuffs binding him had been released and that the soldier guarding him had disappeared.

Many miracles have been reported since then by those who have prayed at the Crucifix.

There is also a side chapel with an image of Saint Leonard dating from the year 1430.  There are several other artworks here as well.
